Actress Kangana Ranaut took to social media on Wednesday to share that she will be directing her upcoming project titled Emergency, based on former prime minister Indira Gandhi’s life.
Sharing a news report about the same on her account on the Koo app, Kangana Ranaut wrote, "Pleased to wear Director's hat again, after working on Emergency for more than a year I finally figured no one can direct it better than me, collaborating with fabulous writer Ritesh Shah, even if it means sacrificing on various acting assignments, I am determined to do it, my excitement is high this is going to be a tremendous journey, my leap to another league #Emergency #Indira." Ritesh has films like Pink, Kahaani, Kahaani 2 to his credit.
On Thursday, Kangana took to Instagram stories to share a sneak peek into her undergoing body scanning as a part of pre-production work for the movie. She captioned the video, ‘Body scans for film Emergency, time to get into Madam Prime Minister Indira Gandhiji's skin.’
In a statement earlier, Kangana had said that the film will not be a biopic, but political drama. She said, “It is not the biopic of Indira Gandhi. It is a grand period film. To be precise, it is a political drama that will help my generation to understand the socio-political landscape of current India.” The film was earlier supposed to be directed by Sai Kabir.
